. mitch mcconnell is sort of hiding behind maybe waiting for a phone call from joe biden. the president really doesn't have anyone who wants to move as far as he, himself, is willing to move. >> okay. another nail in the coffin. here's something else that will remain in the republican budget this year. $600 billion in tax hikes agreed to in the fiscal cliff deal. paul ryan might have voted in favor of the fiscal cliff deal. many republicans did not. take a look at how congressman jason chaffetz from utah responded to it this morning. let's watch here. another little wrinkle. >> did you vote against the fiscal cliff deal? >> yeah, i did. i tid. >> is this budget going to assume the $600 billion in new revenue in the fiscal cliff deal? >> we haven't gotten to the final product. paul has not yet released it. it potentially will. >> do you think it should? >> i want to look at it in its toel totality. look, at the end o the day you actually have to fput numbers o piece of paper and achieve balance. >> joy, david, you know this as well. republican party for years going way back to the reagan

is the president is trying to get around the far right because the far right basically has to control mitch mcconnell, primary him out of kentucky or certainly boehner, who needs their votes to say speaker. he's going around as you were saying, basically cherry-picking, looking for republicans that will deal with him. one of those persons cherry-picked, lindsey graham, who basically put together the dinner is already being threatened in the last hours of the week with a big primary challenge because he was out there subbing with the president the great new hero of the right wing, rand paul, fighting with the filibuster. >> that's what is so great about the republican party now, one thing people miss about the sequester is the 50% of it is defense cuts. this republican party has decided to put cutting the deficit in front of keep piling money into defense. that's the real lindsey graham/rand paul divide. and that's why in some ways democrats can't say this but they're actually quietly ok with the sequester. what it does is it cuts defense in a way -- the political process would not be able t

boehner or mitch mcconnell. both men said we want this to happen to the regular order. they say, okay, we're going to let this happen through the regular congressional process and the president can intervene at key times in order to try to bridge that gap. you know, we'll see what happens because if you took a heavier hand, that could also backfire, too. because a lot of republicans don't really want to work with the president that closely. it's a difficult job managing congress, especially on an issue as tricky as this. >> well, speaking of messaging, here's what the president said when he was asked about why his budget, which is coming out two months late, won't be balanced. >> we're not going tole ba to balance the budget in ten years because if you look at what paul ryan says we have to do to balance the budget is you have to voucherize medicare, is slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my position is not to chase a budget forsake of a balance. >> is this the dance or the president's bottom line? >> i think this is the president's bottom line. if you look at patty murray's budget,

[video clip] >> given what we have heard about the budget so far, it is obvious why they refused to release 1 for so many years. we hear that it will not prevent medicare from going bankrupt. we hear that it contains yet more wasteful "stimulus" spending. spending that turns out to be a lot more effective at generating jokes for late-night comedians than jobs. in order to finance more spending, we hear that it relies on more than $1 trillion in new taxes. that includes on the middle class. remember, washington democrats already got more than $600 billion in taxes this year. so where is the new revenue going to? come to charities? the home mortgage interest deduction? will they go on after families and small businesses against? -- again? their budget will never balance, not today, not tomorrow, not ever. host: senator mitch mcconnell on the senate floor yesterday. on facebook -- and peter says -- let's go to chicago, ind

. that is something that both mitch mcconnell and john boehner has said. if the president moves even further in that direction, even further toward paul ryan, will they give anything on taxes from some of the more powerful members of the republican conference? right now there is no indication they will. i think it will be very, very hard in order to get a grand bargain, despite all this renewed optimism in washington. >> i agree with you. if the president has to go further on entitlements than he has already signaled he is willing to go, i don't think it can happen. talk about mitch mcconnell's role in all of this. the president obviously had dinner with 12 republican senators last week. the bottom line is there will have to be some deal with leadership, meanwhile, mitch mcconnell is up for re-election. he is facing pressure from the left and the right. he is concerned about shoring up his right flank. does that make things more complicated in terms of striking a deal? >> i think that you've seen mitch mcconnell take an increasingly tough line against taxes. he was the architect of the fisca

-old ashley judd has decided she's definitely going to be running against senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. i understand you just got back from louisville. >> what i can tell you is that she has told several key people that she's in and that she will announce sometime in and around derby, which is the kentucky derby, which is the first saturday in may, i'm guessing late april leading up to the derby, maybe up to the beginning of may. the attention of the country on louisville at that time. she'll make a big play. that's what she's told people, that she's in. >> how has she gone about laying the groundwork? >> she's being very methodical. she sat down with kirsten jigil brandt gillibrand from new york. she's talking to a lot of different media people who might help her. the name i hear is j.b. porschp. she's been working close with emily's list. my sense of it and the reporting i did is she decided she wanted to get into politics around the time she went up to har vrd to get a graduate degree in public administration in 2009. this is something she thinks is in her blood and something she th
, against mitch mcconnell, the senate republican leader. >> ashley judd looks like she's all systems go for running for senate in kentucky. she's acting like a candidate in waiting. she's talking to folks in washington and in kentucky about it. >> reporter: it would be a bruting race. but there's no question, ashley judd is pretty tough, as i found when i interviewed her last year. >> i can wear the t-shirt that says, i do my own stunts. >> reporter: nice. >> no! >> reporter: do you think you have learned enough about fighting now that you could mess somebody up for real if you had to? >> i absolutely know i could. now you tush -- turn. >> reporter: she showed me how to throw a hollywood punch. so you hit me, for the record. >> i did. i did. >> reporter: so why would judd who was once one of the highest paid actresses in hollywood, though herself into what would surely be a knock-down, drag-out political fight? she largely walked away from acting in the early part of the last decade after being treated for severe depression, the result, she said, of a turbulent childhood, during which s
budget proposal before the senate and the house present there's. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell seizing the opportunity to point out that this year will be the first time in 92 years that the president's budgets submission does not begin the process. >> given the fact that we are going into the budget week with both the democrats and republicans, basically laying out their budget will be on the floor of the house and senate next week, it is noteworthy to point out this is the first time in 90 years that the president's budget will actually come up after both the house and senate have voted. i hope that is not a reflection of a llck of seriousness, but it is beyond party. lou: house budget committee chairman paul ryan wrote of "wall street journal" op-ed today, laying out the republican 2014 budget plan. the right approach slices more than four and a half trillion dollars in spending and balance the budget within a decade and cuts tax rates while doing so. and it eliminates obamacare saving almost $2 trillion. that is not unlikely event. about as unlikely, in fact, as the democra
up on capitol hill first he met with the senate republicans after which even mitch mcconnell said that it was a good exchange and a good meeting. and then the president met with house democrats, assuring them that he was not going to make any severe cuts to medicare or to social security or to medicaid. across the river ctac is underway. yesterday's speeches by rand paul who said the party needs a big shake-up and marco rubio who said we don't need any new ideas as republicans. we'll cover did it all right here next on current tv.

mitch mcconnell was the loudest voice on this is aing that the president hadn't been speaking to him at all. now they're all getting a voice at the table and perhaps there's compromise to be had. >> i want to bring in kristen welker. i did want to ask you quickly, what do we know about the conversation at that dinner? what did the president and what did those senators sit around the table and talk about? >> well, craig, the white house and folks on the hill are keeping most of the details under wraps, but i can tell you that they said that the majority of the conversation was focused on deficit reduction and the president really laying out what he is putting on the table, making it clear that he is willing to reform entitlements. some people saying that they hadn't been aware of the fact that he was willing, for example, to put means testing on the table and those types of things. so really, both sides staking out where they stand on these issues and talking about the sequester. how can they at this point mitigate some of the impacts of the sequester and one important point about the
. >> senator johnson's leader, mitch mcconnell says the revenue question is settled, settled in the fiscal cliff, so no more revenues. i don't know what you compromise about. the charm offensive, one night dining together at the jefferson hotel follows a long period in which the president has said republicans don't just have bad policies, they're bad people that have bad policies. >> right. >> and it's hard to undo that in a night. he needs five senators, that's basically what he needs to do. you need five justices to get something done in the supreme court. he needs five republicans to come over to get to 60 with the 55 democrats. i think it's unlikely. >> go ahead. >> he needs five more than that. he has to bring the house along, as well. so this has got to be a bicameral, this has got to be a robust process and, again, you have to take that first step and the president did that i think republicans reciprocated. >> if the president lays out more far-reaching entitlement reforms on medicare, for example, will democrats in the house follow him? >> well, i think what needs to happen, the pr
on the floor to voice their support. most were newcomers, new faces. mitch mcconnell, the senate republican leader, also joibed. what we saw was a huge response from the conservative grass roots supporting rand paul on twitter. we saw the conservative drudge report calling mccain an old bull, you know, freedom works is calling on mccain to apologize to rand paul. so i would say this raises a really important question. what is the gop establishment? maverick john mccain might have been on the wrong side of this one. >> interesting. i'll stay with you as we switch gears here. we're going to take a bit from the president's weekly address talking about his gop meeting. >> earlier this week, for example, i met with some republican senators to see there were smarter ways to grow our economy and reduce our deficits than the arbitrary cuts and the so-called sequester that recently went into place. we had an open and honest conversation about critical issues like immigration reform and gun violence and other areas where we can work together to move this country forward. >> so, there appears to be so
